female, who believes in the full social, economic, political equality of women and men, and i would say also act on it. when i first came to new york and tried to get an apartment, i discovered that landlords felt single women were not financially responsible, and if you could earn enough, you must be a hooker. the first year i freelanced, i spent a lot of time sleeping on the living room floors of my friends. i think that back then i'm not sure i knew what feminism was. i mean, you know, i had had one sentence in my textbook somewhere in the past that said women were given the vote. i thought it was all finished, it was all won, and if i was still having a lot of difficulty, it must be my personal fault. >> honey, when was the last time you baked a cake? >> last week. >> when i was growing up, we thought the position of women was biologically dictated.
